At least that’s what the flipper claims.
Ummm, yea sure.
What standard is he going by?
At least you don’t have to worry about slipping off that one. I had a set of stairs with more slope than that today.
There is some slope you Deal Killer. :twisted:
All codes set aside, did it leak?
Not yet…but installed within the last month.
He did not, you made that up… You did right??? :roll::roll:
to be continued.
Well it will drain somewhere.
I use the same app on my phone as you do but I have often wondered how accurate it is. I have not checked it against a true pitch gauge. I some times get a funky # even after I calibrate the app
Is it missing drip edge as well? Cant tell in picture three if that is d-style or beaded facia.
Well it’s certainly less than 2/12. FAIL
Advise client , laugh at flipper and head home knowing job well done,
A: Roofs that have slopes of 4:12 or less are considered to be low slope roofs. (4:12 means a vertical rise of 4 inches for every 12 inch horizontal run, or 18.4°). Never apply asphalt shingles to slopes that are below 2:12 (9.5°). Shingles applied on low slope slopes do not last as long as shingles on steeper roof pitches, due to the increased exposure to sunlight and other weather conditions. Generally, laminated/architectural shingles are better suited to steep roofs, where their enhanced aesthetics are more readily visible.
Q: How can I reduce some of the problems associated with low slope roofs?
A: Low slope roofs are more susceptible to water entry due to ice dams and wind-driven rain. Therefore, the key to a successful low slope roof is to increase the watershedding properties of the roof system.
Rain and melting snow do not run off quickly on low slope roofs. As a result, the potential for ice dams is increased. By providing adequate ventilation the formation of ice dams can be decreased. Note: “The National Building Code of Canada allows various types of ice dam membranes to be used, but CASMA recommends that self-adhering modified asphalt membranes be used.” (CASMA Technical Bulletin No. 16)
Wind-driven rain is another concern associated with low slope roofs. By improving the underlayment or by using a special shingle application method, the damaged caused by wind-driven rain can be reduced.
See Bulletin on Applying Shingles on Low Slopes or CASMA Technical Bulletin No. 16 for more information.
